This 50-inch 4K TV is so cheap before Prime Day it could be a mistake

Looking for a new TV but on a tight budget and not wanting to wait for Prime Day deals? Right now, you can snap up a 50-inch 4K TV from Sceptre at Walmart for just $203. It’s a savings of $77 on the usual price and an awesome way of enjoying a budget TV for even less than usual. While it might not offer the quality that a big name brand provides, at this price, it’s an ideal TV for placing in your kitchen or a child’s bedroom without breaking the bank. Be quick though — as is always the case with great offers, the stock is strictly limited and you could miss out.

The Sceptre 50-inch 4K TV isn’t going to stand out in our look at the best TVs and Sceptre isn’t one of the best TV brands either, but at this price, it feels kind of silly to complain too much. For the price, you get a 50-inch 4K screen and 3 HDMI connections so you can easily hook up all your necessary devices to the display.

Somewhat understandably at this price, the Sceptre 50-inch 4K TV isn’t a smart TV so if you want to stream content to it, you’ll need to use a streaming device to do so. That’ll take up one of your HDMI ports but odds are you were already hooking up a few relevant devices to it anyhow. It does, however, offer MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) support so you can plug your smartphone or tablet in and the TV screen mirrors the actions you perform on it. That could be handy if you want to share some content on the big screen. You can also hook up a USB port for watching your photos as a slideshow too.

Ordinarily priced at $280, you can grab this Spectre 50-inch 4K TV for just $203 right now as part of Walmart’s early Prime Day sales. If you’re in the market for a cheap TV, you can’t really go wrong with this one.

Here’s how you can get a free 55-inch 4K TV today (seriously)
Telly looks to show scores and other game information — along with ads — while you're watching in real time.

It's unlikely you're going to find any other TV deals that actually get you a whole TV entirely for free. However, that's exactly what Telly is offering right now. Touting itself as the "biggest thing to happen to TV", consumers can sign up to reserve a 55-inch 4K TV entirely for free. The catch? Well, there's a few of them and that mostly depends on how you feel about handing over information about yourself, as well as constantly viewing adverts alongside your TV viewing experience. Don't write it off entirely just yet though. Let's take a look at exactly how the Telly model works and check out what we know about the free TV involved.

Why you should sign up for Telly
There's a lot to take in about Telly. To start with, it's worth paying attention to the TV involved. Simply put, we don't know the brand or whether it stems from the best TV brands or not. We're guessing not. After the Telly announcement, we talked to the Telly PR team to find out more and didn't get far. 500,000 TVs are available through the offer but Telly hasn't stated who the manufacturer is other than it's "the same manufacturers that produce may of the world’s top-of-line TV sets today." In terms of specifications, all we know is that it has a 4K resolution and HDR capability. If you're looking for one of the best TVs, this is very unlikely to be it.

Best Buy just dropped the price of Amazon’s 50-inch 4K TV to $310
Amazon Fire TV 4-Series 4K HDR TV.

Best Buy TV deals and Amazon TV deals are usually competing for your dollar. Today, they've joined forces. Right now at Best Buy, you can get a 50-inch Amazon 4 Series TV for just $310, down $140 from its usual price of $450. Fire TV streaming is built into this device, so it's a great option for people who want a simple plug-and-play TV. It's one of the best TV deals available at either Amazon or Best Buy today, so snatch it up soon.

Why You Should Buy the 50-inch Amazon 4 Series 4K TV
Perhaps somewhat expected, Amazon did start building its own TVs, and one of the most significant changes between its TVs and other brands, is that it includes Amazon's own Fire TV streaming platform built-in, complete with Alexa support. That means you can use both your Fire TV remote and Alexa to search for content, control playback, and interact with smart home devices connected through Alexa. You can also check the weather, sports scores, and much more. Think of the TV as more of an entertainment and smart information hub, as opposed to just a panel you can watch shows and movies on.
